Bulldog Tools is proud to announce that we now have the Guinness World Record™ for the largest garden spade in the world! Here’s a picture of it at our factory.
As our regular readers will know, this year is our 230th anniversary. We wanted to mark the event with something special and making the world’s largest spade seemed just the job! The new record stands at 3.61 meters high (the same as one tall person standing on another tall person’s shoulders) and weighs in at 180kg.
Made here in the UK, it required 160 hours to build and included every department at our factory in Wigan. The new record beats the previous by half a meter in height and has been verified by Guinness World Records™.
Fred Foot from Bulldog Tools says:
“This record marks 230 years of British manufacturing for Bulldog Tools. This is an achievement of which we are all very proud.”
We will be taking the world’s largest spade on tour around the UK and you’ll be able to keep up to date with its progress on this blog. Next week we’ll be talking about how we made it – be sure to check back in!
If you would like to come and see how solid forged, top quality tools are manufactured we would be delighted to take you on a tour of our factory.
